how to make hair dye slime

Slime is so much fun and we really wanted to make some this half term, we had some crappy weather days and it's was the perfect time to do this activity so I grabbed the ingredients and we got busy making!
But when making the slime I forgot we didn't have any food colouring but we did have loads of hair dye colours, so we added some and guess what?! IT WORKS! 


We used stargazer hair dye as that's what we use to dye our hair, it's skin friendly and is REALLY bright! You can find this on Amazon or eBay for about £3.50 and because you only need a small amount it will last ages! 

What you'll need:
  • 1 cup of PVA glue (clear or white) 
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda in the US) 
  • 1 tsp hair dye in your chosen colour
  • 1 tsp contact solution (Borax)
  • Any glitter, sand or beads you want to add
  • Any food essence or essential oil you want to use.
  • Mixing bowl and spoon

Recipe:
  1. Add 1 cup of PVA glue in a mixing bowl
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of your chosen hair dye 
  4. Add other optional bits like glitter or essence. 
  5. Mix well until smooth and coloured. 
  6. Add 1 teaspoon of contact solution. 
  7. Mix really well until slime forms. 
(sometimes you need more contact solution but don't use too much or it won't be slimy anymore)

We used peppermint extract in our slime to make it smell minty and fresh it's lovely but you can use any scent you want. You can literally get it from any supermarket!
Lilli had so much fun with this making faces and flowers with the slime! She's kept it in a Jacobs cracker box with a rolling pin and some cutters too!!

And you're done! It was super easy to make and we've made so many colours of this! I hope yours turns out great too!

The overall cost of this including hair dye is below:


  • Hair Dye 3.50
  • Contact Solution 2.69 (Superdrug)
  • Bicarbonate of Soda 1.00
  • PVA Glue 1.50 
  • Mixing bowl 50p
Total: 9.19p, Obviously mine didn't cost that much as I already had hair dye and bicarbonate of soda.
